Sarah Sellers 2nd Boston
Quote | Reply
She entered the race like a normal runner - ran one marathon previously, got a qualifying time and sent in her application. She decided to run because her brother was doing the race. She did not expect to be in the elite field. When she finished she thought she might be in the top ten but had no idea she was in second. She won $75,000. Very cool story.

Agreed. Ran like a 30 sec PR or something. Waiting for an article on her.

Are you sure she gets the $75k? I'm doubtful if she didn't run with the other elites. Pretty sure for the money it matters who crosses the line first/second/etc.

Nevermind: It was the 5th place woman that ran with wave 1. Sounds like they will pay her as well (and I assume the woman who crossed in 5th, but who knows).

Ride for show, run for dough.

Here's a piece from Runner's World on the "unkown" women in today's race.

Sounds like she was a decent collegiate runner. She ran a 32:51 10km, so just off olympic qualifying standard.

It's pretty cool to hear that she works full-time as a nurse anesthetist:
